Nospam's utter lack of credibility is astounding.

What you seem to forget so easily is that we've had this discussion in
spades in the past, where, on Android at least, it's trivial to
automatically change your reported IMEI number on the fly, and where it's
/not/ illegal in most of the world, and, even where it is illegal (e.g., in
the UK), something like 3 people have been convicted in something like a
dozen years, where even the authors of the bill (whatever they call a law
in Parliment) said very clearly it was simply a /symbolic/ political
gesture (aka, a cheap political trick).
